also known as: Chinneroth, Kinneret
Chinnereth was probably an ancient Canaanitish name adopted by the Israelites into their language.
This was the name of a city, a district and a lake.
The town seems to have given its name to a district, as appears from 1 Kings 15:20, where the plural form of the word is used.
The ruins of the city are now called Tel Kinrot (Kinarot) or Tell el-'Oreimeh (see satellite view below).
